George R.R. Martin’s ‘The Ice Dragon’ Preview

George R.R. Martin’s ‘The Ice Dragon’ Preview 

Like Terry Pratchett, George R.R. Martin quite enjoyed writing stories for younger readers early on in his career. One of these, The Ice Dragon, is soon set for a rerelease by TOR books and to mark the occasion is getting an incredible new cover. For those unfamiliar with the story, here is the blurb: In the world […]

OH NO! George R.R. Martin’s Editors hint at 8 ASoI&F Books…

OH NO! George R.R. Martin’s Editors hint at 8 ASoI&F Books… 

No one can accuse George R.R. Martin for rushing his work. And, honestly, why would he? Over the 17 years it has taken the author to put out the first 5 books in the A Song of Ice & Fire series he has sold millions and millions of copies (some sources quote over 24,000,000 books […]

‘A Game of Thrones’ without Dragons?

‘A Game of Thrones’ without Dragons? 

Imagine if the gift of A Song of Ice & Fire was never given to the fantasy genre. Yes, it was, but humour me for a minute… In my eyes, George R.R. Martin has to be thanked extensively for this contribution to the current state of fantasy. Think about it: would we be seeing the current stream of […]

Dunk and Egg Collection Announced 

Today, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who hadn’t seen, read or at very least heard of A Game of Thrones… However, the stories of ‘Dunk & Egg’ – The Hedge Knight (1998), The Sworn Sword (2003) and The Mystery Knight (2010) – are far less well-known – mainly because they’ve been buried in genre […]

Game of Thrones Movie?

Game of Thrones Movie? 

Last week we brought to your attention the fact that there was a battle of words and intentions going on between George R.R. Martin and HBO. To give you the short version: HBO said that although they didn’t want to they would write their own conclusion to Game of Thrones if George doesn’t finish book […]

Game of Thrones: TV To Overtake Books?

Game of Thrones: TV To Overtake Books? 

Since Game of Thrones for television was first announced, questions about whether the books would be able to keep up with the rate at which HBO produced episodes were asked. Despite Martin having a 4 book head start, it seems that the producers of the show, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, feel that seven series in […]

After years of making us wait, 2011 rolled into town and so did Mr. Martin’s long awaited book, number five in a planned seven book series. It is safe to say that many of you were patiently waiting with dread as to whether it would be more of the same crawling to useless strings in […]

Having spotted this on the Inn at the Crossroads blog, I was utterly intrigued and decided I simply had to add it to my reviews list. Firstly because it was being published by Random House, and not by Harper who publish A Song of Ice and Fire, and I was curious about why, and secondly […]

A Dance With Dragons by George R. R. Martin

A Dance With Dragons by George R. R. Martin
4.5

It would be fair to say that A Dance With Dragons has been highly-anticipated. One of those unfortunate hazards of such an epic series, combined with a lengthy period between novels, is that expectations are often high. While novels don’t necessarily suffer the same levels of hype as movies, television or video games, I believe […]
